of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint

with deeds. our defense spending is deeply cut . we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. >> steve: here is pete is here. >> good morning. >> steve: mitt romney would like to be commander-in-chief. did he make a good case for himself . >> it was a fantastic speech and speech about leadership and carrying the mantel for freedom and still in a dark and difficult world and used libya for the larger struggle we face. he put it in the context of the larger foil we have faced. there are forces of radical islamism that seek our destruction and we stand up up to that. there will not be daylight for israel. and red line for iran. >> brian: he brought up the fact george marshall said the best thing to do to avoid war is to build up our defense and make us stronger. that's the best deterrent in war and proposed to build that rather than shrink the military. >> that is right. that is the difference between governor romney approach and the president. peace through strength. and the president said standing back is less provocat
to blame the rome rom ticket for making this an issue. with you should note impose devastating defense cuts, when we equivocate on our values and show weakness, when we look weak our adversaries are more willing to test us and our allies are. >> with all due respect that is bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so. >> not a single thing he said is accurate. >> vice president knows sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [laughter] >> i always say what i mean. bill: that just now a sample of what you're going to get for the next two hours here. so much of the focus today though is about what joe biden was doing, when he was not talking. his body language, the arguably the most argued about item from last night's debate. that is where he start. steve hayes, senior writer "weekly standard.". fox news contributor. good morning there in danville, kentucky. >> good morning, bill. bill: start with the incumbent. how did joe biden do. >> the fact that so many people talking about demeanor, but the fact that he continually interrupted paul ryan but many times martha radditz, corr
president to admit outloud that he he had no idea what was going on. ignorance is hardly a defense. the fact of the matter is there were over 230 security incidents there in libya. our consulate there in benghazi had been bombed twice. now, where else in the world are you aware of any consulate or embassy having been bombed twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in fact, compounded by the fact that the white house, the vice president, they continue -- they are just not being straight with the american people. they have a lot to answer for. >> congressman chaffets, of course, the statement released by chertoff and hayden is this. >> given what's been announced about the intelligence available before and after the september 11th attack. it is clear this the failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who shoul
? >> well, you clearly had these conflicting reports of within 24 hours, the department of defense designated it internally as a terrorist attack because then you're able to mobilize more resources. but even then you had that quickly, the president, secretary of state saying the video. i mean, secretary clinton, as she was standing next to the coffin with the body of our ambassador and the three other americans who had been killed, as she was standing next to those coffins, she said, you know, horrific video. now, that's just shameful. we know it's not true. so i know it's an election season and i know that the white house will attempt to stall, but i really commend what is happening on the hill and i hope congress will continue to push on this. >> steve: i bet it's a topic at the vice presidential debate, which is something you know a little about. >> i imagine it will be. >> steve: liz cheney, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> brian: i'll see you only radio a little later. >> gretchen: coming up, usually something you don't have to worry about until you get much older. n
